With book funds the library purchases some educational software where there is technological
compatibility with Libraries or LMC hardware and where licensure agreements do not
preclude operating such material. Purchase requisitions for other types of software
should be submitted by colleges and departments through normal channels to the U of
M Director of Purchasing, the only University official authorized to attach an addendum
of legal limitations and sign agreements with software suppliers.
If during the bibliographic search process it is determined that a title requested
for the library collection is accompanied by a CD-ROM or other software, the Collection
Management Department will attempt to ascertain whether any copyright restrictions
would preclude its use in a circulating library collection. The library will decline
to purchase material containing such restrictions.
When purchased, material accompanied by diskettes will be housed in a location suitable
for safeguarding data on the discs.
